Derek is standing outside the truck, cupping my face in his hands. “I don’t want to see a single ounce of sadness on your face.” He looks down at the ground, his jaw clenched. “You are the best thing that ever happened to me, baby. You are my reason for breathing, you were made for me. You are the other part of my soul, and without you I would not be complete.”
He kisses me so softly, so sweetly, that my toes curl and I close my eyes as he rests his forehead against mine. We just breathe each other, take in this moment.
“I love you so fucking much, angel, it hurts me. It hurts me to go an hour without seeing you.” He leans back, cupping my neck with his hand. “I am obsessed with you. You are my every thought.”
I can’t stop the tears no matter how hard I try, and he kisses my hand, right on my ring finger. “You are to be my wife, the mother of my kids, baby. You are the best thing on this fucking earth. Those people in there are nothing, baby.”
He smiles at me. “You are an angel on earth, baby, and I am the fucking devil.” He clenches his hand on my throat. “Together we fit perfectly.”
“You are mine forever, baby, forever and ever.”
I smile, putting my hand on top of his on my throat. “Yours always.”
